ABSTRACT
The article reports on the decertification warning by state superintendent Ted Sanders against the Homer Community Consolidated School District in Illinois. The admonition is issued due to the inferior conditions of the school where teachers had been protesting over salaries, benefits and class sizes. Once the decertification of the school is enforced, it would mean that the school could not receive state funds.
